Well Morphia, I'm so sorry to hear about your pain. DAMN...it's so fricking ridiculous that we have to go through this shit. It's absolutely amazing how each of our bodies are different. YOU DON'T OWE ANYONE AN APOLOGY!!! We are not doctors!! We were just giving our thoughts. So...I'm on your side. Your doctor is an asshole. The only thing you can do about that, is keeping changing doctors until you find one who will listen. My doctor listens, thank God. He doesn't really help me as far as giving me a cure, but, he's definatley NOT condensending, and actually seems a bit sympathetic. I like the fact that when I tell him stuff from this board, he writes it down, so he can research it as well.

ALSO----ALL OF US, INCLUDING ME, REALLY NEED TO GET AWAY FROM THE BULLSHIT POSTS. WE REALLY NEED TO BE A SUPPORT GROUP GUYS. THESE RUDE, RIDICULOUS POSTS GOING BACK AND FORTH ARE NOT HELPING ANYONE!! I'M SORRY FOR THE ONES I DID, AND UNLESS THERE'S ANOTHER HOLISTIC JACKASS PERSON ON HERE, OR SOMEONE TRYING TO SELL ENZARA, I WILL REALLY TRY NOT TO GET INTO THOSE NASTY BATTLES AGAIN!! Morphia, I apologize to you, especially....

Here's my symptoms when B.V. is coming on.

1. Bubbles, right when I'm finishing going pee
2. I use Dial Soap only on my vagina. If I have B.V., when I wash, I can smell fish. If I don't have B.V., there's no smell when I wash. (If I use any other soap down there, it ALWAYS SMELLS LIKE FISH, so, using the Dial is key for me)
3. Pinching feeling going up through the Vagina.
4. Grayish color discharge, that drips out in the toilet and on underwear
5. Shit smell in Vagina.

I don't ever have the fish smell to where anyone can smell it, unless it's during Sex. Years and years ago, when I got this, I could smell it while just sitting there, but I treated it back then, and it didn't return for about 10yrs. And since then, I never have a smell to where my co workers can smell it. I feel really bad for those of you who do!!!!

Yeast Infection:

1. Burning, both on the inside and outside
2. Itching so bad that you want to take a baby bottle brush and stick it up there and go in and out, in and out, in and out!! hahaha
3. Cottage cheese like discharge
4. Smell of bread, sorda! lol

So, I can't relate to the pain you are having with the B.V., ONLY because I don't have that with my symptoms. But evidentally, from the posts here, pain with B.V. is very common!!!

Morphia...please try to stay calm. Once you get the burning under control, hopefully the doctors can give you something that will start giving you relief. There's been a couple of things on here that some of us have found that have really worked. But, you need to get the burning under control I think before you insert anything else vaginally. GOOD THOUGHTS TO MORPHIA!!! biggrin.gif

You have contributed NOTHING to this board.

I don't think that's true.

And I think you should take responsibility for the fact that you're the who picked a fight with me, first. All I said was "No one said you didn't have BV." One sentence. A statement of fact. Then you went ballistic. Then you made an excuse, that you had a lot of health problems which gives you the right to act the way you do.

I am very sorry about all your health problems. Everyone here is. No one wants you to be sick and everyone wants you (and ourselves, and each other) to be well. But it doesn't give you the right to be an asshole.

I wish you would just disappear.

Please use the IGNORE function. Please really use it, not just say you will but lie about it.

And also Morphia?

I think you need to see a therapist.

Guys, I need help!

ok my MAJOR problem with this b.v./yeast shit is that when I get my period the smell is TERRIBLE! It's the worst smell I could even think of! I am really tempted to purchase tampons because of how bad it can get. I'm talkin' not only me smelling the FUNK, but I know damn well the people around me are suffocated by it! I feel bad for my boyfriend 'cause he has to put up with it when he's with me.Although I change the pad very often, (1-2 hours never longer) the smell just doesn't subside.

I really need suggestions because i'm helpless. Should I try the tampons? My only concern is that it may things much worse, especially smell-wise. Please HELP!


Hey ilovehim.

I quickly skimmed your post history and you mentioned that you've been taking flagyl? But you're still having the really bad odor?

It's possible that your problem might be something else, not BV.

My experience with flagyl is that it works, at least while I'm taking it. It just can't prevent recurrences. (Just my experience.)

Ilovehim: 2 WORDS = DIVA CUP!

My vote is thumbs down on the Diva Cup. Putting re-useable plastic things in your vagina might not be a good idea because: ... diaphragm use has been associated with increased incidence of candidal infections, urinary tract infections, and bacterial vaginosis. I'm not sure why this is - but it might be because you're introducing bacteria into the vagina while you're putting it in and taking it out.

Of course, a Diva Cup is not exactly the same thing as a diaphragm. And remember, it's just one opinion. You should use your own judgment and do what you want.

Go ahead and ignore away. But it won't change the fact that when people tried to help you, your reaction was very rude. And then those very people turned out to be right. I guess you won't be reading this message, but I think you should apologize.


My reaction was not rude. You're just an arrogant, over bearing bitch who thinks she has some kind of degree in gynecology matters. (Now THAT was rude) I owe you no apology. I am not the only one here who thinks you have been way too hard on me. Just because it wasn't posted here doesn't mean it wasn't said in private.

And apologize for WHAT anyway? Has the doctor confirmed yeast yet? No. Get over yourself. You have contributed NOTHING to this board. You're an antagonist. Plain and simple. The only thing you have done so far is condescend and berate people. You lend no support to the ones that need it. All you do is kick people when they are down. I wish you would just disappear. As far as I'm concerned your "I told you so" attitude is not welcome here. Now I really am ignoring you. Don't waste your time responding to this.

[Edit] And I also wanted to add that those people were WRONG! You kept INSISTING that the burning was due to yeast. Well, when I went into the doctor the time before this it was...drum roll...BV!!!! No yeast in sight! And no yeast on the wet prep today! You=WRONG!

Are these better than the Mooncup? I want to try a menstrual cup but don't know which one to go with.

And I found more.

http://www.divacup.com
http://www.thekeeper.com
http://www.mooncup.co.uk
http://www.lunette.fi
http://www.softcup.com

Ha! Just realized one of those isn't even in English. I guess you can disregard the Lunette site.

I don't know...its a close one between the Diva Cup and the Soft Cup. What do you all think?

They did it to me again. I called up there at 4 for my results, and they asked that I leave a message. They never called me back. So I, once again, have to wait until MONDAY to really find out what the fuck is wrong with me. Even though I know its bv I still can't believe I have to wait so god damn long to find out. FUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUCK!

Has anyone here ever considered...suicide? I'm sorry to bring it up. But a lot of the times, I just can't imagine living like this for the rest of my life. After all that I've already dealt with...I thought it was finally over. But I was wrong. Something new just had to come along. I just look back on the days where I was healthy and I want it back so much that it tears me up inside. That was 3 or 4 years ago...I've been in hell for almost 4 years now and it just gets progressively worse. I'm just so sick of this.

ok so i noticed a new pain today. usually it's cramp like feelings and also some soreness that feels like it's actually in my vagina. now today i started feeling a pinching feeling. felt like someone was sticking something pointy up there and poking me with it. i'm a little worried now. i made an appointment for monday so i'll find out something then hopefully. sad.gif

morphia that's horrible i'm sorry. maybe a warm shower would help. (i would say a bath but we all know that's a no-no.) or a heating pad to calm things down. aww i feel bad for you. maybe you can call up your doctor and ask for something to help with the pain?

Morphia:
I feel soooooo bad for you! I remember going through the same exact thing. Be prepared because finding a GOOD doctor is very hard. I went through about 10-15 different doctors and I know half thought I was crazy/hypochondriac. I kept thinking "Do these people not see/ smell this rotten shit coming out of my vagina?". I know it was there because at one time it was sooooo bad that when they stuck the spectrum in my vagina, the discharge would come running out. So, with that being said, I know I was not crazy! Doctors are so fucking lazy. They don't care about shit other than what kind of insurance you have. It's sad I had to find my own fucking cure. Knock on wood! Good luck gurl! smile.gif

I just got back from the doctor's office. I asked for a culture and he said that he'd never done a culture. That they don't do cultures....Also when I told him about my pelvic pressure he just said "Hmm" and shrugged and then proceeded to tell me that there was no relation to the bv or the cervical dysplasia.So they did a wet prep which came back as inconclusive. But he did allude to the fact that my ph was indicative of bv (didn't say it outright for some reason). So they're running the affirm test. And hopefully I should know in about an hour. The colposcopy was terrible. It burned so bad. And when they were injecting the local anesthetic I couldn't stop shaking. I was already upset by the fact that this doctor just wasn't listening to me and then when the pain set in I just couldn't stop crying. This was by far the most terrible experience of my life. He took several biopsies, which I could still feel over the anesthetic....How do I go about finding a doctor that does cultures? How do I go about finding a doctor that's better than this incompetent piece of shit? The burning is killing me. I can feel it on the inside and on the outside. I've taken a tylenol with codeine and even that is not helping. I just want this to go away...

I recently just started reading about yeast, I really don't know jack shit about it. But I think that we all have some rare type of yeast that is killing our good bacteria. I didn't know that just because you don't itch or have cottage cheese creeping out that you could still have a massive yeast infection in your blood.

I once talked to a holistic remedy consultant, and she told me to spit in a cup of water, and let it sit overnight. If by the next morning there was a certain pattern in the glass, that meant I had too much yeast in my system.

Or something like that, I forget.

Anyway, she also told me all these awful things that could happen to my body because of too much yeast (not just yeast infections). And then she tried to sell me these pills that would solve the problem.

I'm not saying she's wrong, or right. I don't know jack shit about yeast either. But whenever someone tries to sell me something, that's when they kind of lose credibility with me. (Although since she was a holistic remedy consultant, I should have expected her to sell me stuff anyway ...)

Anyway, here are my suggestions:
  • Tell you doctor you are concerned about the possibility of PID, because you have constant pain/pressure in your lower abdomen.
  • I think this is a useful article (re: Mycoplasma genitalium) Print it out and bring it with you if you think it will help.
  • Ask for a bacterial culture.
  • If you're not ready for a colpo, the doctor will decide that.
Best of luck to you. I hope everything goes well, that you feel better, and you get closer to finding out what's wrong and how to best treat it.

I understand that you are stressed out and in pain. But wow, you have got some nerve. Apologies are in order, and I think you know that.

[Edit] I found the ignore function. My doctors appointment is in an hour and a half. I'll let them know what's going on with me and hope they don't do the colpo. But at the same time I want them to get it done and over with ASAP. What if I have some kind of cancer or precancer that's causing all of this?

I didn't know that just because you don't itch or have cottage cheese creeping out that you could still have a massive yeast infection in your blood. I knew antibotics caused them, but I didn't know that steroids did as well. I'm no weight lifter trying to acquire more muscle mass, I was on steriods for asthma for years. Recently my doctor put me back on them.... I will not be using them any longer.

We need some kind of combo med pack that can work together killing the bacteria and yeast at same time.

Morphia..I have the piss your pants thing too. Have since I was younger. You know what else is odd, and my friends laugh because they don't believe me...but I have to put in a new tampon whenever I pee because it gets urine on it if I don't..And it doesn't matter of how high or low I insert it. My anatomy is not correct.

Nope...it only gets worse. It doesn't get better. Guess what happened to me today?! I PISSED MYSELF! Hahaha. Whatever is going on with me is affecting my entire genitourinary tract and I don't see an end to it! I've had what they call "giggle incontinence" my entire life. You make me laugh too hard and its Niagara Falls. Usually you have to make me laugh pretty damn hard for it to happen. But today, I laughed hard for about 2 seconds and the stuff just came out in one quick spurt. Luckily I had an extra pair of pants in my car. Unfortunately I had no underwear. So I went to the Tool concert (My FAVORITE band by the way. They are god.) tonight without underwear. I did some sweating "down stairs" and now my ass crack is sore! I took a shower and washed it off and its still sore! And there is also an odor there too that didn't go away with washing. So now I think I might have a yeast infection in my ass crack! (My doc and I are pretty sure I've had one before.) I also think I have a bv/yeast coinfection too because the burning only continues to worsen. Especially since I've pretty much stopped my diet and started smoking again. So now my vag burns and smells, my pelvis feels like there is a balloon in it, I'm as incontinent as a damn 80 year old and my ass crack feels like somebody sand papered it! HAHAHAHAHA! This is fucking HILARIOUS! My luck is shit. I can't wait till tomorrow when my old school doctor laughs in my face for all the questions and suggestions I'm going to have. He's probably just going to think I'm one of those internet head cases that gets paranoid from "reading too much." The second the words "Mycoplasma" and "Ureaplasma" pass my lips he'll probably start tuning me out from then on. I'm so angry right now. That Tool concert was a spiritual experience for me but I could not immerse myself completely into its glory because of that wretched sweat and BURN! I HATE THIS SHIT!

And how the holy hell am I supposed to get a colpo with these infections going on? Isn't it dangerous to do a biopsy with the shit I've got brewing down there?

Morphia, make sure that you tell your doctor to check for that bacteria common with strep...or any other bacterial infection that you have had. Like I had mentioned earlier that I had a bacterial pink eye infection...I'm gonna look and see what bacteria are common with that infection, as well as strep, and ear infections, sinus infections, respiratory infections... I was very sick as a kid..suffered from those infections often, and spent much of my childhood in the hospital. Different antibotics treat different bacterias.. Who knows.... Doctors are lazy....

I don't give a shit if they think I'm nuts...but I am the fucking customer, and I'm paying so they better do as I ask or I will just go somewhere else. Like I said it won't hurt to know. Noone knows enough about this shit anyways.

Do you think bacteria can crossbreed...?

I know how you all are feeling, I'm more rotten smelling then a fish boat right now. I know it's proly not a good idea to wear tampons on account of that you stink..but i do.

I'm wanting to read more about body temperatures when I get time, just becasue i know your body temperatures change throughout a womens monthly cycle, and you can even tell when your fertile by monitoring your temperature. (I think it rises?) not sure. I'm just curious what effects temperature has on maintaining your body ph balance, or none at all... Does acid become more acidic when heated...or does base become more alkaline.

I'm sure as fuck its not gonna solve the chronic bv mystery but I'm curious.
